I never cease to be amazed how, with an apparent straight face, you construct arguments based on what someone else says or did, ergo it must be true for everyone else, too. Law school, even in western PA, must provide some powerful antidote to common sense.

Crawford Palmer is (was, 30 years ago) his own case. Walker Miller is his own case. Young Mr. Miller has made his decision, right or wrong (I think basketball is the wrong standard, but I'm neither 18 nor Mr. Miller). He has decided the chance of sneaking into that ivy tournament does not equal his chance of being on a NC team. I doubt a phone call from Palmer would change his mind.

Here's an offer for you, if you are truly serious (versus merely being argumentative because you love arguing). If Dartmouth finishes 4th or higher in the League next year, I will cease posting for 3 months. If they don't, you will cease for 3 months. Deal?

Pick any college basketball team you want. Duke, UNC, Gonzaga, whoever.

If they finish closer to winning the NC than Dartmouth does finishing fourth in the Ivy, I will stop posting for three months. If Dartmouth is closer, then you stop for three months.

And if your team wins the NC and Dartmouth finishes fourth or better, then its a draw.

I thought Dartmouth guys liked a good food fight? Are you telling me Animal House was inaccurate?

How could anyone ever determine how a team finishes "closer"? Why try to complicate matters or leave a lawyer's "out"?

If you are so certain, then say yes to my very simple and unambiguous offer. If you don't accept, it's clear you don't truly believe what you have claimed.

"I'll take Dartmouth achieving fourth over any single team winning the NC next season."

Which of course was in response to your claim that "UNC winning the NC seems more likely to me than DC getting 4th in the ivies next year."

Even AO thinks you should take the bet.

As for "closer," what exactly was your definition when you made your claim that UNC was more likely to win the NC than Dartmouth was to take fourth?
